A'Ala Park Master Plan | Downtown Honolulu, Hawaii
This Master Plan for Downtown Honolulu to redevelop a decrepit State Park filled with vagrants, prostitutes, and homeless people. The city wanted to use this space in association with Kamehameha Schools to create a learning space in the middle of downtown.
The space uses a combination of retail, commercial, educational and low-income housing. There was a proposed Library, Office spaces, Restaurants, two-story Agricultural Learning Center and Gallery, as well as mixed-use low-rise office, retail, and condominiums for low-income families.
University of Hawaii; Faculty Housing | Honolulu, Hawaii
With Faculty Housing for the University of Hawaii: Manoa Campus growing to increasingly stressful conditions, we were approached by the Hui (group) to collectively cone up with a solution to their problem.
We chose a site near one of the University's Community Colleges that was a rundown lot only used for about a couple dozen parking spaces. With this Master Plan, I designed Three Luxury Condominiums with 42 units to offset the cost of the Six Faculty Housing Condominiums providing 18 units.
Coleman Lanai Addition
Redesign of the Front Entry into the Coleman's Residence by creating a new staircase and new covered lanai (balcony) adding roughly 300 more square-feet to their Single Family Dwelling.
This staircase was a feat of Engineering as it required some of the strongest heavy-duty hangers from Simpson Strongtie to provide not only structural loading, but loading for the lateral forces as part of the staircase is cantilevering.
Department of Hawaiian Homelands (DHHL) Intervention
Working with a former partner, Ryan Ching, we developed an Environmentally Stable Three Bedroom, Two Bathroom Native Hawaiian Home for one of the Plots of land the University of Hawaii has been allotted. The entire project was hand-drawn and proposed to the DHHL for approval on their site.
